UNICEF Celebrates 75 Years of Children’s Advocacy

This past weekend, UNICEF Belize held a gala event in Belize City to celebrate the seventy-fifth anniversary of the U.N. agency’s work to protect children and enhance their well being. Not just in Belize, but around the world. The special evening was attended by representatives from many of the partner agencies and government ministries, the children’s advisory council and others. UNICEF Belize Country Representative Allison Parker addressed the gathering in person and Prime Minister John Briceño shared a pre-recorded message to offer his good wishes.

“UNICEF was founded in the aftermath of the second World War, to save children’s lives and protect their lives. Today we celebrate 75 years that UNICEF has delivered for children. From a period of armed conflict, natural disasters, and humanitarian crisis, to long term development  and enduring legacy with you, the government of Belize and our partners who have been on the ground to provide essential services for children in need.”


John Briceño, Prime Minister

“On behalf of the government of Belize, I extend warm greetings to UNICEF on the occasion of its 75th anniversary. This celebration belongs to those whose UNICEF has touched and forged lifesaving transformational changes for. This includes children the world over, as well as partners like Belize who continue to hold the agency in highest esteem. For us, this partnership means breaking down barriers and inequalities that children face. And building the bridges for a better tomorrow, towards Agenda 2030 when every child is healthy, safe, educated and can live up to their truest potential. This is when we have secured the path to a brighter future for us all.”
